Meanwhile, there’s a new man at the helm of Lympstone Football Club’s youth section and that is Adam Fardley.

Lympstone main club chairman George Webster says of the appointment: “I’m delighted to welcome Adam to the role, its one I am sure he will do very well in.”

The new Lympets youth chairman added: “We have lived in Lympstone for over eight years and our children have played for the village football team for three years now and we’re extremely passionate about it, this is the reason I’ve taken on this role.

“I’m a strong believer in positive change and believe this club is capable of offering a positive and safe environment for children to develop. I intend to work closely with George [Webster], who is such a positive advocate for Lympstone Football Club, to engage players more importantly children to join a club they can be proud of.

“As soon as this lockdown is over we’ll be running free weekly coaching sessions, with fully qualified FA coaches for under-7 and under-8s with the aim of forming new under-7 and under-8 teams for next season.

“We are also looking for players and coaches for our Under-12s, 15s and 16s for next season.”
